Choose one of many kayaks before you head off on your adventure.

The legend behind Monster Cave goes as follows. There once was an ogre who came to the coast and saw a part of it that he wanted to take back to his birthplace. So, he took his staff and smashed out a piece of the coastline. The Sea God was not happy when he saw what the ogre had done. Thus he dragged the ogre out into the sea as punishment. Nowadays, you can still see the fallen rocks near the cave where the ogre tried to steal a piece of the coast for himself.

Enjoy the stunning sunset on the Sea of Japan from your kayak.

Feel the refreshing sea breeze, see the rugged cliffs and the sparkling water, listen to the sound of the sea, and smell the seashore while exploring the coastline and basking in its natural beauty.
